Hi, My (middle) Name Is...

Last week was a super busy week at the Fat Quarter Shop. So I didn’t get to read my favorite blogs until Saturday! And what do you know, Camille tagged me!

I have to list one fact about myself for each letter of my middle name.

A – Accurate – I am very precise by nature so I try to make everything in my life accurate. I go back and triple check everything – from kits we cut at the Fat Quarter Shop, to cleaning the kitchen, to checking if the door is locked!
N – Nice – I am a nice person and fun to be around.
N – Computer Nerd – I am online at all moments of the day! So I am a computer nerd.

So now I am supposed to tag one person for every letter in my name... But instead I am tagging everyone! Comment on this post with one fact (that is somehow relevant to your life) for each letter of your middle name. Those who don’t have a middle name should use the middle name they would have liked to have had.

And guess what? We will enter all your responses into a random drawing, and two lucky comments win a Jelly Roll of their choice! We will post the winners on Tuesday, September 11, so let's see those middle names!

(It would be helpful if I proofread!) I agree, you are QUITE the nerd! I love it though, who else responds to emails in mere seconds?? :-)

Vicky said...

Oh, cripes, I've got a long middle name! No fair!!

E - Easy to please
L - Laughs too loudly
I - Ice cream rules!
Z - I look for Zebras sometimes, not always horses!
A - Apple pie with my ice cream, please!
B - Babies melt my heart (Hi Emma!)
E - Eyeglasses 'cuz I'm old!
T - Tidy I'm not (especially when sewing!)
H - Happy as a pig in mud most of the time!

That was hard!!! LOL. Thanks, Kimberly Ann, for a fun game!!

Amanda said...

Hi, Kim! I stumbled across your blog at Happy Zombie's. I love your shop!

Here goes my middle name game.

Y-Yap (I love to talk)
N-Nice (some people say I'm too nice)
N-Nap (a 15 minute one most afternoons)

Hatch Family said...

Camille told me about your blog. I can always use fabric. i am just learning to quilt.
J- Jolly

Christina said...

Thanks to Camille, I am in it to win. :)
I knew I shouldn't have taken my maiden name for my middle.

R- Rocky road ice cream is my favorite (Breyers to be more specific).
O- One of a Kind.
S- Silly. I have to be to keep sane as a mother.
K- Kind, at least I hope people think so.
E- Easy going, I like to think I am laid back.
L- Loud, I get that from my mother's side of the family.
L- Learning to quilt (again thanks to Camille)
E- excited to win!!!
Y- youthful

That required too much thought. :-)
Christina R. Curtis

pam1228 said...

Thanks for the contest! Looks like my middle name will be as easy as yours... we both have the same middle name:

A - Almond anything
N - Nosy
N - Neat

The Brandleys said...

I think my middle name might win for the longest! Camille told me about your site and I love it. anyway here it goes.

L - Loving, my mother called me her love child from the very beginning. and I'm very loving to all around me.
O - Odd, I've got some interesting quirks, mostly in my everyday speech.
U - Up... My mood, and my feet are always up.
I - Interested. I'm always interested in learning knew things.
S - Snow. Being from Canada, I love it and I miss it.
E - Easy going, not a lot of things stress me out!

C - Cheesy, I love cheesy romance and cheesy movies, and cheesy food too!
E - Eating, I love to eat and I love good food
C - Cats. I have a dog but I think I'm more of a cat person!
I - Imaginative. My mind is always going, but mostly I'm imagining scary things lurking around the corner.
L - Learning, I'm learning to quilt! (thanks Camille)
I - Innocent. I've led a very sheltered life. People at work think I'm so naive.
A - Affectionate, I love to hug and cuddle, but only with people I know really well!
Wow that's tough. But lot's of fun. It really makes you think.

Camille said...

Thanks for letting me enter- I'll do anything when there is fabric involved!! Besides, who doesn't love a good contest?? :-)

O- Organized- There are few things better than knowing exactly where everything is, and knowing it is all where it should be. Unfortunately, my kids don't seem to appreciate this, and strive for the exact opposite.
L- Lucky- Look at my life! How lucky am I to have such a great, supportive, loving, funny husband and two adorable, crazy, sweet little boys?? Did I mention how great my friends are??
A- Addicted- It is true, I am addicted to blogging, Twix, and fabric. I can't shake any of these, no matter how hard I try (okay, so I don't try, and have no plans to start trying anytime soon)
V- Vocabulary- I used to have pretty good one, but years of Bob the Builder and Toy Story have taken it from me.
E-Eager- When I decide I want to do something I get really excited and focus way too much of my energy on it, and I don't sleep until it is done. Example- Thimble Blossoms.
S- Stubborn- Sometimes I find myself fighting for something and half way through, forgetting what I'm fighting for. Maybe this makes me more forgetful than stubborn...
O- Outspoken- But this is something I typically don't like about myself. Once in a while it comes in handy though! Could also stand for Oreo, as I am eating Halloween ones right now (anyone else notice the seasonal ones are SO much better than the normal ones??)
N- Night-owl- I love love LOVE to stay up late. Especially if I have something fun to work on. I actually plan power naps in the afternoon or early evening just so I can stay up super late. Oh, and while I'm up late I love to eat, listen to music and either sew or read blogs.

jlk said...

I took my maiden name as my middle name, and am glad I did because it's s-h-o-r-t.

L -- Long suffering. You guessed it, I have much patience to deal with my crazy family.

E -- Energetic. In our house, we are constantly dancing and singing and playing. It makes me want to take a nap sometimes.

E -- Easy going? No way! My hubby will tell you I'm a little uptight, especially when I don't get to go to my quilting group.

And I wish I had an "S" for "Sense of Humor." Or an "H" for "Hilarious."

Hope I win :)

I have the same middle name and similar qualities so it will be difficult to come up with something different....

A - Anti-Late. I am very against being late to somewhere (appointments, etc) that I
generally leave the house 10-15 minutes earlier than I need to so that I can assure I won't run into snags getting there (see 1st N)

N - No sense of direction. I could not navigate to save my life. I have to have my husband help me the day before or first appointment so that I can not get lost and get flustered. (see 2nd N)

N - Need Navigational System for my car. I am in desperate need of a navigational system even though I live on Oahu and you can generally get anywhere (barring traffic) in 30 minutes or less) and if you hit water, you have gone way too far.

Jan said...

This was fun. Here's my info:

A - Adventurous...if there's a quilt shop within driving distance anywhere on my travels, then I'm there. My friends and I have even gone so far as to rank the cleanliness and decor of the shop bathrooms, and the friendliness of the staff.
D - Devoted to quilting, even though I don't get to spend as much time as I would like
A - Appreciative of the hand arts, especially applique, which I love to do. I sometimes wish that I had been born in an era where women spent much of their days working at refining their handwork skills.
I - Inspired, especially after guild show and tell, or a quilt show, by how many talented folks are out there.
R - Retired (not yet, only in my mind), but I've got big plans! I'm waiting for the granny years (being one), and being able to snuggle up with the little ones with a quilt that I've made. Right now, I'm a responsible, hard working adult, and the only creativity in my job is massaging budget numbers (which is really like putting the pieces together to create something whole).
